I believe in a holistic, person-centered, humanistic approach that utilizes the creative process. Are you seeking a supportive space to deepen your understanding of self? Do you believe that change is possible? I do. I combine talk therapy with dance/movement to create a non-judgmental, warm, safe, and collaborative space to help my clients reflect, explore and increase self-awareness. I have experience working in community mental health, adult inpatient acute psychiatric care, adolescent day treatment, adult social day care, public middle school, early intervention preschool and nursing home settings.

I focus on the unique needs of each individual, while honoring the pace and process required. I truly believe that change is possible and that you can attain the healthiest, happiest life that you deserve and desire.

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT), as defined by the American Dance Therapy Association, is "the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process which furthers the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual."(www.adta.org).
